Choosing a luxury cottage

Sam 14 August 2012

What makes a Luxury Cottage?

When I’m out and about in Yorkshire visiting our gorgeous cottages I often reflect on what it is that makes them so special.  What makes our luxury Yorkshire cottages stand out from the crowd?

Yorkshire luxury cottage

It’s sometimes hard to put your finger on it, but when you walk into one of our Yorkshire cottages, you can just sense it.  We always look for the wow factor, whether that’s an amazing view across the Dales, a stunning interior or a perfect location. We are extremely proud that all of our cottages have that something extra and we know our guests love it too.

Why choose a luxury cottage?

When I launched Gorgeous Cottages, my mission was and still is to work with only the very best luxury cottages in Yorkshire and to provide the very best service to our guests.  When choosing cottages for the site I always ask myself the same question ‘Would I like to holiday here?’ To make the grade the answer must always be yes.

I suppose you could trace this love of quality back to my honeymoon when we used Scott Dunn to organise an incredible trip to Hong Kong and Bali.  True to form, the quality of the accommodation was fantastic, the locations amazing and the service provided impeccable.  This inspires me to deliver at the same level with Gorgeous Cottages.

When you book a cottage in Yorkshire, or anywhere else for that matter, you want it to live up to your expectations.  Holidays don’t come around that often, and if you are sharing this time with your family or loved one then it’s even more important that the cottage really delivers in terms of quality and comfort.  That’s why we personally inspect every cottage: to ensure that our guests leave Yorkshire happy and relaxed, looking forward to coming back again.

Our owners

I couldn’t finish this blog without mentioning our Gorgeous Cottage owners, without which we wouldn’t have any beautiful cottages to share with you. All of our owners are incredibly passionate about their cottages. They treat the cottages with all the care and attention they would their own home, and this plays a huge part in giving our cottages that luxury x-factor. They love welcoming our guests to their little slice of Yorkshire heaven and we are grateful to them for caring so much.
